Securing health from disastrous impacts of cyclone Pam in Tuvalu

Cyclone Pam, which had its centre of force and most disastrous impact in Vanuatu also ran through the islands of Tuvalu on 13 March 2015. The force of the winds appeared to have reduced slightly when it hit Tuvalu but much of the damage was caused by a combination of forceful winds and seawater infiltration of the inlands.
